Meet NICT’s 200-inch glasses-free 3D display

Once this technology becomes widespread, think of the advertising and display possibilities it could bring…

3D overkill: If you thought Toshiba’s 20-inch naked-eye 3D TV is cool, think again: Japan’s NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) has developed a projector system [JP] that makes it possible to produce 200-inch 3D pictures that can be viewed without having to wear 3D glasses.

The art of David Spriggs

February 11, 2011


Thanks, to British-Canadian artist David Spriggs, it’s now possible to experience viewing 3D images without the need for a expensive 3D-capable display and glasses.

By working with acrylic and layered plastic sheets, David Spriggs is able to achieve a 3-dimensional effect for what are technically just layered semi-transparent works. You can go to his personal website to view more of his work, which mostly sits on the haunting and ethereal side of things.
